“Excellent food, high prices”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Salads are extraordinary, bread superb. The best Osso Buco in town. Very popular weekends for lunch and dinner so make reservations. Acceptable selection of wines. The only issue is their prices.

“One of Tucson's Best”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Vivace is one of the best restaurants in Tucson. It is an upscale Italian restaurant with a well trained waitstaff. Food tends to be Northern Italian style. The wine list is quite extensive.

“best in tucson”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

I have only eaten at this restaurant 4 times, but it is probably the best in Tucson currently, even though it has some very tough competitors that I will review separately.
